TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Oliver Heaviside, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date31 December 1891
DescriptionRix apologises that Heaviside should have had to write such a long letter, and suggests that it is clear that they must do what they can to meet his wishes about the type. He states that they are well aware, without the instruction of the printers of the 'Electrician' newspaper, that a Clarendon type could be used pica roman with the use of justification, but that this is an expensive process and it would require less time and money to cast a new type. They will have to do this, and try to ensure that the delay is as short as possible.

A sample of a portion of the paper will be sent to prevent future mistakes.
